This combo is the standard radiation meter setup for performing routine surveys for radiological contamination. It is also useful for surveying scrap metal for contamination, though we prefer a scintillation probe for that application. The Ludlum Model 3 is an extremely robust instrument that can take a lot of abuse in the field. We do have older style meters we sell for $100 less if you are trying to save as much as possible. Ask for the replacement if you want that. The older ones have a faceplate that is harder to remove.
The Counts.Pro allows the operator to review surveys to look for spikes in activity that might have been missed during a survey. This is particularly useful for cabinet X-ray surveys where a small leak might not be noticed while performing the survey.
This sale includes the Meter, Probe, cable, and a Counts.Pro installed. The unit can have a NIST Traceable calibration for an additional fee. Most people doing scrap metal surveys don’t require calibration, but it is available.
